Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight.
Yes, you should add the other defendant. You may have to pay a small fee, but there is no real downside to it. Since the answer has already been filed, you can either stipulate to allow you to add the additional party or you will have to file a Motion for Leave to amend your complaint.
I would do it now rather than wait, so you can send that party discovery.
